In other words, which game do you think had the best way it celebrated a specific holiday? For me, I love the original's Halloween. I love how the villagers would chase you and turn your clothes to rags if you didn't give them treats. It was just really well done, and you couldn't figure out who was Jack and who wasn't. I also loved the original's Christmas. It just felt more magical than the rest. What about you guys?
I definitely agree with you on the Gamecube's holidays, especially Halloween and Christmas. They really had the most charm and atmosphere, and I try to make sure I play them every year. The only other one that comes to mind is the Harvest Festival in NL. I actually enjoyed the minigame of finding specific ingredients and using them to help prepare the dinner.
My favorite holiday was New Year's in Wild World. I love the countdown and I would spend the holiday in real life with my family, which was always enjoyable. I have happy memories of those celebrations as I grew up, so thinking of the Wild World New Year celebration reminds me of them. I usually had my DS during those celebrations so I could see the countdown and talk to my villagers about the new year.

I agree that GameCube really stands out for the holidays. Some I don't remember as clearly and may not have experienced but the Halloween one stands out for causing me so much stress lol I also remember the fireworks clearly and being impressed by it compared to WW. If I get a used Wii and copy of the game (I'm not going to ship it from my parents') maybe I'll try them again.
I liked the smaller events like morning aerobics and the sports festival too.
Favorite holiday of all time is Toy Day from NL. I loved having to slowly build up hints throughout the month, keep track of them, collect the outfit, and then figure out the day of which present goes to who.
